Can you believe we’re already into May? It feels like only yesterday we were patiently waiting in the middle of summer for our batch of Ginga iced tea to cool down! Now, as the nights are getting shorter and the weather gets colder, we find ourselves turning up those heaters and nursing a warm cup of tea. At Tea Associates, you can be sure that we know the value of a good cuppa no matter the season, and with Mother’s Day approaching, we couldn’t resist sharing ALLLL the benefits of popular herbal blend we created with women’s health front of mind.

The Tea Associates full range consists of 10 unique tea blends, five of which are herbal: Minted in Bendigo, Tallula, Bedtime Bouquet, Ruby, and Ginga.

We couldn’t possibly speak about mums, women, and females without highlighting our gorgeous herbal blend ‘Tallula’. The name of this tea is Gaelic in origin, speaking to our strong Irish heritage, and translates to ‘Lady of Abundance’. This tea is brimming with so many beautiful, nutrient rich ingredients, many of which are traditionally taken to promote health and wellbeing, especially for females.

There are nine ingredients in our Tallula tea, with meticulous time taken testing various ingredient combinations, and we are so proud of the finished product. It’s a smooth tea to drink at any time of the day, a lovely afternoon hug-in-a-cup or a comforting evening drop encouraging a peaceful night’s sleep. Whilst the ingredients of Tallula themselves are health-promoting, we know the actual ritualistic element of making and sitting down to enjoy a cup of tea promotes relaxation and stress reduction. Carving time out in our days *IS* an act of self-care independent of anything else, and we find the satisfaction really rises when we add tea!

Do you know a busy, hardworking mum that needs to take some time out? Check out Tallula’s ingredient list below to learn more about her and how she can help.
